Storyline

Bonnie, a young and successful Latina architect, is sexually assaulted while walking home from an evening out with friends in Brooklyn. At first, she attempts to keep the assault a secret from her long-term boyfriend Matt, but the truth quickly emerges. She emphatically denies the impact of what has just happened to her. She fights to regain normalcy and control of her life, but returning to her old life is more complicated than expected. Her attempt to recapture the intimacy she previously had with Matt falters and cracks begin to surface in their relationship. Another attack in the neighborhood only drives Bonnie further into denial, before an encounter with an at-risk woman causes her to face the truth and confront her own self-blame.

Astonishing performances, terrific film
22 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Writer-director Jessica M. Thompson's gaze is both compassionate and unflinching-- a remarkable feat-- as she directs Stephanie Beatriz in a truly remarkable performance. The film tackles an unfortunately necessary topic at a necessary time. We need this movie and more filmmakers with Thompson's clear-eyed voice. Long takes and a naturalistic approach make her direction standout as well.
